  • I Recently Saw On Facebook That Coconut Oil Is Bad. Is That Right? - Coconut oil is technically a saturated fat, but to liken it to animal fats or butter is misleading. Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride meaning that it has a completely different chemical structure to other saturated fats. As such, it is processed in a completely different way by the body. The liver can quickly convert coconut oil into energy Continue Reading
  • Why Do You Keep Telling Me To Slow Down When I Lift Weights? - THE most effective way to burn fat and improve body-shape is to build more muscle tissue. Building new muscle increases your resting metabolic rate which allows you to burn more fat all day long. But building muscle is not an easy or quick process, especially if you’re over the age of 30 and/or female. So, to build muscle (and therefore Continue Reading
  • Should I Be Buying Organic Food? - Organic food has gained popularity over the last few years, despite costing 50-100% more than non-organic food. Unfortunately, potential differences in nutritional quality; if there are any, appear to be minimal. Surprisingly, no studies in the last 75 years have compared effects of organic and conventional produce on human health. The quantity and quality of studies that have compared the Continue Reading
  • I Do Pump Classes On A Regular Basis. I Don’t Need To Do Any More Training With Weights Do I? - While you may be forgiven for thinking that ‘Pump’ classes can be classified as weight (resistance) training, unfortunately you’d be wrong. Pump classes consist of using a relatively light weight for a very high number of reps with very short to non-existent rest intervals. It is because of these factors that we cannot consider Pump classes to be true resistance Continue Reading
  • How Can I Stop My Food Cravings? I Can’t Control Myself When I’m Emotional Or Bored. - Well rest assured, you’re not alone. Anyone who has tried to change the way they eat in order to lose weight has experienced cravings. What matters is whether we give in to them, and how often we give in to them. A 2010 study revealed that a common flower extract proved effective at stopping cravings at the neurotransmitter level, meaning Continue Reading
  • I’m Short On Time, Can I Just Combine My Weights Training With Some Cardio? - Whilst it can be tempting to combine cardio training and weights training in order to fit more in less time and to also ‘mix things up a bit’, it’s important to understand what this will actually do to your body... and therefore your health and fat-loss results. As you are probably aware, weight training is incredibly important as it helps Continue Reading
  • Are Soy Milk And Soy Based Foods Good For Me? -   The soybean contains large quantities of natural toxins or "anti-nutrients". First among them are potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes vital for protein digestion. These inhibitors are large, tightly folded proteins that are not completely deactivated during ordinary cooking. They can produce serious gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino Continue Reading
  • How Many Calories Should I Eat Per Day? - Ah calories... those nasty little buggers that drive people crazy and totally confuse even the savviest of dieters. Firstly, I strongly recommend that you give up counting calories as it is such a flawed and unsustainable way to lose fat, improve your health and lead an enjoyable lifestyle. Whilst foods can be measured in regards to the number of calories Continue Reading
  • I’ve Heard A Lot About Fasting Like The ‘5 And 2’ Diet. Should I Be Doing It? - Fasting diets have gained a lot of popularity lately thanks to TV shows, books and celebrity endorsements. The main benefit of fasting is that it can help to reset your hormone levels and insulin sensitivity, which control health and fat loss/storage. However, fasting doesn’t address the underlying issue… your hormones and insulin sensitivity are messed up from what you eat Continue Reading
  • How Much Protein Do I Really Need To Eat? - When you eat protein, your body breaks it down into individual amino acids. It then uses these amino acids to repair, rebuild and replenish every single type of cell in your body (organs, skin, hair, brain, muscles, etc). Not to mention it helps to boost your metabolism, therefore improving your fat-burning ability. So, it makes sense that we give our Continue Reading
